    I've made about 15 shorts with my kid this year. He doesn't take direction, so rather than quality I go for fun. He also doesn't talk yet, so I lean on music and subtitles.

    They're all just me and my son for crew. This one is OM-D, 12-50mm kit lens, cheap tripod, 720p/30. Edited in Sony Movie Studio 11. Total time to create: 2 hours to shoot, another 3 or so to edit, all in one day.

    Make sure to click on the little gear on the toolbar under the picture and highlight 720 for full quality.

    Man, that was AWESOME! Make more!

    I love "Lafayette Dirigible and Spark Plug Society" and your kid is for sure stinkin' cute!

    Playing checkers with death was a nice touch, lol.

    Just too cute! And somehow, because of the setting/history, a bit sad.

    Great Patrick! So (I'm an idiot) what was happening in 1883?

    I picked 1883 to try to avoid having any historical meaning.

    I was going for a generic 19th century battle, shot like a 1940s Hollywood war-melodrama. I'd just watched Seventh Seal a few weeks earlier, so it seemed fitting to end with a nod to mid-century Swedish cinema.

    Ha! Well you obviously had me fooled. I'm a "student" (well a fantic anyway - reenactor, researcher, interested party) of military history, and I was already half convinced that there was a conflict in 1883, but couldn't put my finger on it. It's actually hard to believe that there wasn't considering the continual violence of mankind in this world.

    P.S. When I first saw the thread listed my first thought was - ahhh, another poor soul has misspelled "Canon" again. :biggrin:

    Thanks for the positive remarks, glad you enjoyed it. I just posted a music video I shot a couple of night ago. It's the first thing I've done without my kid in it in a long time!
